On1 Culture Exclusive Interview: Ms. Krys Harrison

Krys Harrison
Recently I had the privilege of getting an interview with comedian, Ms. Krys Harrison. She's a very talented comic whose style and material tap into the everyday. She has opened for established acts (Rob Stapleton, Capone , Sinbad , Etc. ) To the author of “Lady-Like? To playing “Rosie” in Angel Salazar's off Broadway play “Cuban Sandwich”. This is what happened...

CAN YOU DESCRIBE WHAT IT WAS LIKE THE FIRST TIME YOU TOOK THE STAGE TO MAKE PEOPLE LAUGH?
 Is there really a way to describe watching the start of your dreams coming true?

WHO'S YOUR INSPIRATION?
I draw from Bill Cosby for his storytelling, George Carlin for his ability to make not funny real life things hilarious. And I am in love with Amy Schumer for being a fellow awkward big girl , she takes the sting out of slutty behavior.



AS A FEMALE COMEDIAN, HAVE YOU EVER BEEN PUT IN A “CASTING COUCH " PREDICAMENT?
 It has happened. But I'm not one to give up on myself and take the dumb, not even guaranteed road to success .

 BEST PLACE TO GET A HOAGIE, HANDS DOWN?
I couldn't tell you. I don't eat stuff like that anymore unless I'm on my period. DOES COMEDY TRULY

COME FROM PAIN?
Absolutely. When I'm happy 100% of my material is awful. Like worse than garbage. You will never see me make flowers and gummy bears funny. Now extra marital affairs and heartache and Chlamydia , I can make that funny all day!

 IF NOT FOR COMEDY, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING? PORN! 
The really disturbing stuff!

Knock, Knock.....? 
I don't go in houses that don't have doorbells, that's that Texas chainsaw massacre bullshit!

WHAT'S YOUR BIGGEST FEAR?
 Getting caught with my pants down in between waxes! 


Sean Jones: She's a proud island girl (officially certified duttywine) from Jersey, putting her best foot forward. From comedian, author (Lady-Like?) Founder of Independently Wealthy (woman’s resources), writer, producer , director of Nignorance is Bliss (mockumentries) . Krys Harrison is a true entertainer in every since of the word. Be sure to see her at a show near you! Thanks again, the one and only 

Ms. Krys Harrison! We Out!
